Actor, Producer, Marketer

I'm an actress who — despite my roots as a die-hard Packer-backing Wisconsin girl — loves living the actor life along the shores of Chicago's lakefront.


Before Chicago, I lived in Sydney, Australia, where I had the pleasure of performing in television, national ads, plays, and award-winning short films. ​I'm a passionate dog mom to my little Aussie pup Bella, a half-pug who has her own Instagram account who made the trek across the Pacific Ocean to live the city life with her little pug sister Sukie. ​


When not on screen or stage, you'll find me busy producing — to date, my shorts have earned over 40 laurels, with 8 Best Acting awards — or geeking out as I put my Masters in Marketing to use, deploying marketing tactics that generate results (#SEOnerd) with metrics you can measure. 


Despite my extra-curriculars leading to six concussions and three ER visits, I'm happy to do my own stunts at any time — just don't tell my Dad; he'll try to make me wear a helmet. 


​Looking for an actress in the Windy City, Wisconsin, Australia, L.A., or anywhere else your filmmaking journey has taken you? Send me a message - I'd love to learn more!
